We're working on deploying World Chat back to the game! Previously world chat was disabled due to occasional server crashes caused by the feature, so we've worked on improvements to stability and performance and resolved the root causes of any crashes.

Please make sure you're up-to date with the Communication Rules to avoid putting your world-chat privileges at risk. Thanks for playing fair!

We hope that the comeback of World Chat helps players communicate better and create more positive interactions for new players and veterans alike. Enjoy!

To talk in world chat:

  • use the /c command (short for chat), ex: /c hello world
  • click the "Say" button at the bottom left of the chat box in-game and switch it to "World Chat" (note: if this option doesn't appear, make sure World Chat is toggled ON in settings and then you may need to log back in to update your chat)

Toggle World Chat, Ignore & Report options:

  • a new option when right-clicking yourself "Chat Options" takes you to the updated Character Settings -> Chat & Whisper page with the following options:
    • Toggle World Chat: this allows you to enable/disable world-chat visibility for your character
    • Block/Report Users: this brings up a list of recent messages you've seen (local, whisper & chat) and allows you to Block said user or Report their speech if it violates the rules
    • Unblock Users: this brings up a list of users you've blocked allowing you to un-block Note: Ignoring a player will block their local speech, whispers to you, world chat messages, and any other chat messages from them

Two Way Channel: a two-way Discord channel has been added here where players who are not currently logged into the game can join in on the discussion

Note: Some or all features may not work correctly during the initial rollout, please check back again soon if something doesn't work right


20th May 2024 patchnote

Our new horse and cart system has been added! You can now start a new quest to gather all the items required to make a horse and cart. Look for the quest giver near the Minoc stables. After hunting some skeletons and zombies in the graveyards and collecting a number of undead crystals, you will need to acquire the following items: 1 x Bridle, 1 x Cart, Bolts, and a Shrunken Percheron horse. You will most likely need to work with fellow players who have GM crafters that can help you make these items. Carpenters, Tinkerers, and Blacksmiths will be needed to craft all the parts. You will also need the help of a GM tamer to track down a Percheron horse needed to pull the cart. Once acquired, you will need to find Luke the Wizard, a powerful Dimensional Reductionist, and have him shrink the horse for you. Luke can usually be found wondering around the Dungeons of Britannia. Afterward, return to the quest giver to receive your very own horse and cart.

New treasure has been added to the world, which can be obtained via fishing, mining, lumberjacking, and from world bosses. These include extremely large treasure chests and rare large mushrooms. You will need to use a horse and cart to move these items and seek out Luke the Wizard, who will move locations from time to time. He can shrink the treasure chests for you so you can access your treasure. You may also find extremely large Britannia crystals that will need shrinking. This is a new currency that can be used to buy items from Ben the Wizard in Britain. The items on this vendor will change from time to time.

When moving these large, heavy items in the carts, you will not be able to fast travel. The horse will not be able to enter portals, get on ships, recall, be summoned by a stable master, and will be left behind if the player uses their Hearthstone.

Horse and cart dyes can be fished up outside of towns but not inside dungeons or the deep sea.

We are planning to add some type of "Caravan System/Quests" in the near future where players can start a quest to move large heavy items for an NPC. A server-wide alert will be sent out when this quest has been started, and players will need to move the cart to a number of locations to complete the quest and receive payment.

House Refresh Improvements

  • when you login to the game, if you own any houses, the houses will immediately be sent a refresh signal and your character will receive a confirmation message to let you know it's been refreshed
  • house refresh confirmation messages will now show the house's name, location, region and the time it was refreshed, to make it easier to keep track of house refresh times in cases where you might be away for a while
  • improved refreshing house through interacting with items in the house like lockdowns, containers, doors, and the house sign; previously there was a cooldown between these interactions to prevent spamming "the house has been refreshed" to players, instead now it will perform the refresh and only avoid the system message spam
  • reminder: if you need to be away from the game for longer than 3-4 weeks, please contact us for Vacation Hold on your houses, where we can hold them for up to 90 days of leave

Vendor Deeds:

  • added gender selection when using vendor deeds

Holiday items are currently restricted from being inserted into the House Resource/Gear Chests due to unique properties that holiday items can have, such as the tooltip, color, or other attributes that may not be retained properly when inserting and removing them from these chests.
